Inspired by Norval Morrisseau, TransMigration has world premiere May 10 – 13, 2012

Kaha:wi ("she carries" in the Mohawk language) Dance Theatre will bring together an incredible cast of performers for the upcoming world premiere of TransMigration, a co-production with Harbourfront Centre’s Planet IndigenUS as part of the NextSteps11/12 Series. This new production runs May 10, 11, 12, and 13, 2012 at Harbourfront Centre’s Fleck Dance Theatre (207 Queens Quay West, Toronto). All performances begin at 8:00 p.m. with the exception of Sunday, May 13 matinee at 3 p.m.

Four years in the making, TransMigration is a visually raw and engaging story inspired by the life and paintings of iconic Ojibwe shaman-artist Norval Morrisseau. This work is a dialogue, a response to his vision, struggles and brilliance as an artist. TransMigration celebrates Morrisseau’s visual language through sublime dance and music, vibrating with colour, energy, and sensuality. TransMigration is not a biography but pays homage to “The Artist” and is ultimately a reflection of humanity and the power of spirit to transform and transcend.  — Jessica Cudney, Marketing Assistant
